Robin Koerner

Art of Political Persuasion
Founder and Author

British-born Robin Koerner recently became a US citizen. He founded WatchingAmerica.com, an organization of over 200 volunteers who translate and post in English views about the USA from all over the world. A faculty member of the Foundation for Economic Education, he is a political and economic commentator for the Huffington Post, Independent Voter Network, and other outlets. Robin is best known for having coined the term "Blue Republican" to refer to liberals and independents who joined the GOP to support Ron Paul’s bid for the presidency in 2011/12. He is author of the book If You Can Keep It: Why We Nearly Lost It and How We Get It Back, and a trainer and consultant in political communication. Specializing in the psychology of politics, he brings people together with a view to winning supporters for liberty, rather than just winning arguments. He believes that more unites us as Americans than divides us as partisans. By finding common ground in what really drives political opinions, he believes "We the People” will be able to do what the Founders implored us to do – maintain our natural rights against power and its abuse.
